  1. I asked what Keynesism was, and I was laughed out of the room by the posters, and IIRC, the admin.
  2. funny, when I asked a quesiton on this forum months ago, all the f***ing [email protected]@holes here yelled at me, and I was told the topic, becuase it was a question, does not belong in a debate forum. perhaps its clear and blaitent bias because I support the NDP?
  3. its based on differences. you see someone form china, they have "funny eyes" you hear an anfrican-canadian singing rap, he's "stupid" etc... I once had someone lecture my for 10 minutes on how "I'm not a racist, I'm right" he show'd me a picture of a few african-americans and said "look at how their jaw sticks out, and their head is big in the back... now look at this picture of an ape" that's when I threw him out of my room. He did have a point though, "White men" and "Black men" look different. it's more then skin, it your shape. I know some people from the mid-east, and yes, compared
  4. from what I near, old PCers, Stronach supporters, and Clement supporters were not allowed to vote because they never got their ballots. Bring this up to the party, and they respond with a nice "F*** YOU" in not so many words
  5. in this case, I'd support the death penalty people like this should be shot.
  6. Some people have argued that EEE will not sell in Ontario, I think this poll proves them wrong. The east will go along with this, Quebec? we dont know. Do you guys think we should ram this through without Quebec's consent? I wouldnt mind
  7. I know some french Je M'apple le Pellaken. Je swiss le neavou democraqitue. Je parle missour layton eleu preimier ministere!
  8. Election Prediction website http://www.electionprediction.org/2004_fed/index.html this is where you can post your riding-by-riding predictions!
  9. there will be a populist uprising in 2007/2008. It will come here, in canada, first, then spread around the world. the people need a leader. I'm affraid to say if no one else step's up to the plate, I'll take on the role myself.
  10. for the record Lucien Bouchard was a tory cabinet minister Jean Lapierre was a Liberal MP Gilles Duceppe was elected as an independent who was pro-seperation the 3 came togethor and created the Bloc Quebecois. 5 other MP's (all from the tories) joined the Bloc. One more was elected in a by-election. Of the original 9, only Duceppe remains.
  11. here's something to think about in provinces like Quebec even, there may still be ridings with 100 people, and ridings with 5. Whoever wins the ridings with 5 will be much stronger. Clement, for example, could 'win' ontario, with 25% of the vote from there.
  12. Does Belinda even know what a by-election is? smiley, Harper lost 11 by-elections, mrs.stronach has NEVER lost an election.
  13. we need proporitonal representation and we need to kick the queen out on her [email protected]@
  14. The bloc could form a government. it's how skrewy our system is. if they elected all 75 seats in quebec... the Liberals, Tories, and NDP tied at 74 seats each, and some other party gets 11 seats, then pouf, you have a Bloc government. go figure
  15. I dislike the monarchy we should be a republic. Each province and the federal government should elect its governors (drop the lieutennant and general crap) on a piggy-back election with the general election. Party lines should be banned. I would also support term limits in this case. While I am strongly opposed to term limits on positions of power (if we adopt them, I'll move, no one can tell me who I cant vote for) I think that for powerless positions it does not matter. this would help to prevent patronage.
  16. yea, and jimmy carter did not endorse dean either way, an endorsement is only as good as the coverage it gets, and this one, just aint getting it.
  17. nope the PC Party split into 4 peices -Quebec Nationalists (had been added to the party in 1984 by Mulroney) -Western Populists (had been added to the party in 1958 by Diefenbaker) -"Ontario" Businessmen (had been added to the party way back with people like Meighen and Borden -"Traditional" Conservatives (always been in the party) The Traditional Conservatives are made up, mostly, of the people who vote PC for the sake of voting PC. Popular in eastern canada. They "became" the PC Party post CA. Quebec Nationalists became the Bloc. Western populists became the Reform Party and the Ont
  18. who do I trust not to steal my money? Layton, Harper Who do I trust to stick to his stated principles Layton, Harper Who do I trust to do what I think is right? Layton Who do I trust to keep his election promices ...
  19. Clement better not win, he's a PCer *gasp* who can they elect as leader!! .... ME!
  20. the GG is a total waste of money. she represents the monarchy. what is the monarchy? well, the queen is some german woman who has power because she's rich, and was releated to tyranical dictators of the past who ruthlessly killed their own civilians. I'm an Italian-Acadian, My father was an immigrant, making me, I guess, an Immigrant-Acadian, or when translated into monarchytalk, a f***you-f***you, which pretty well sums up my thoughts on the monarchy
  21. I dunno, seems to me the legislature tried to do what they did to clinton
  22. the GG does absouletly nothing of any use.
  23. perhaps they did it on purpose, to make a point?
